=IF(N101<>"",ROUND(VLOOKUP($N101,$I$30:$U$39,12,FALSE)/(1-(U$96+U$98)),0),0)

That is the current VLOOKUP in the spreadsheet that is returning the wrong data. I didn't write it, it was on a spreadsheet before I came to the company.

What I want to happen is look up the value in $N101 then I want it to find the row that is the same from i30 to i40 take whats in ((k30-j30/)/(1-(U$96+U$98)) when I say k30 I actually mean k30-k40 depending on the match.

it is not clear from your description. Is the value in N101 findable in column I? if so, can't the lookup range only be I30:K40, then return column 3? Perhaps a sample would help us visualize what you have. Or maybe using the INDEX function is more suitable – datatoo Jun 1 '11 at 18:25

                    VLOOKUP($N101,$I$30:$U$40,4,FALSE))/(1-(U$96+U$98)),0),0)

@datatoo, it wasn't my question, I was just the editor. bugz will have to decide if it was the solution. – Lance Roberts Jun 4 '11 at 17:19
    
@bugz was Lance Roberts solution correct for you? The formula appears correct – datatoo Jun 4 '11 at 17:22
